Due to Manchester Township’s current Energy Aggregation contract ending on June 30, 2019, the Township recently went out to bid for a new third party energy provider who could offer electric at a lower rate than JCP&L. Unfortunately, due to current market conditions, the Township did not receive any bids that the Mayor and Council felt would provide the residents ample savings on their electric bills.
Since the last energy contract was so successful, saving residents in the program an aggregate of $2.5 million over the life of the contract, the Mayor and Council will continue to monitor the markets to prepare to go out to bid in the near future. Until then, residents in the energy aggregation program will be returned to JCP&L as their energy provider on July 1, 2019, without any action needed to be taken by the residents.
If and when we do secure a new contract with a third party energy provider, residents who were in the previous energy aggregation program will be automatically opted back in.
